crowson live this morning at camden yards. so what do you think? do they have a real shot? what are people saying? >>reporter: megan, of course they've got a real shot. we're talking about baseball here and the o's have weathered a full season so far, just 27 games remain and they are tied atop the american league's eastern division above the yankees. we still have an a.l. wildcard race going too so the chances of baltimore making it into the playoffs right now pretty good right now, all things being equal. what's important, baseball now great again here in the city of baltimore. they've been taking care of business on the road now. they've swept games in the past two against the toronto blueyai jays, couple that a weekend series over new york in new york. mark reynolds has been on

series to baltimore. they've been losing down in tampa and that's why we're waking up this morning with baltimore, some place they haven't been since 1997. they are first place in the a.l. east come

looking forward to getting out here. >> things the same that we will make the playoffs, but the only thing we make it here, who knows, we came this far and we're doing good, we just might make the championship. >>reporter: there is no reason at all baltimore should not be thinking about a run into the playoffs. also divisional and league and the world series championships, of course, coming up in october. but coming up this weekend, beginning on thursday, a very critical four-game set with new york. that's big enough on its own, but tomorrow we're going to be unveiling the cal ripken, jr. statue as it will be september 6th, 17 years since he broke lou gehrig's record as baseball's all-time ironman, just 2300 games to break ger ig's record, ripkin went 2600 straight games without taking

to try it? mike? >>reporter: no. i really like that bow tie, though. >> he looks good. >> looks like he's having fun. >> obviously a lot of people are going to want to know what the weather is going to be like tomorrow, that's the story and the traffic finally cleared up because of the grand prix. >> yeah. that's the good news but we'll have the usual stadium traffic starting early, so we'll be talking about that. >> it's all on me, isn't it? >> yes, it is. >> let's talk about what's going on right now, megan and we'll get to that forecast for you. as you look at the temperatures this morning and you feel the temperatures as you're stepping outside, it's very warm. these temperatures all across the board close to 80 degrees. there's a reason for that. we do have a southwesterly flow. i'll show you those winds in a second. but we do have plenty of cloud cover around. so when we have those clouds around in the morning, they act like a blanket so temperatures just don't fall off. we are looking at a few showers, mainly off towards the west and we can see some up in new york this morning. if your traveling take you to new england, be prepared for some wet weather. we'll get wet weather in here, scattered during the afternoon. another reason why these temperatures are being held up, we have winds out of the southwest at five to 15 miles an hour. we can see 12 in d.c. right now, nine in baltimore and seven in easton, winchester around eight and six in hagerstown. still dealing with a tropical weather pattern across the area. that will continue even as we head into tomorrow, so it'll be humid at that game. this is what we're working with for today, still dealing with tropical storms out here and tropical storm leslie, really hasn't got its act together yet, still moving to the west -- or north/northwest at about 65 miles an hour. very slowly, only 2 two miles an hour, might as well not be moving, but, look, that forecast still takes it to a category 2 hurricane as we head through time and could be bringing us lots of surf, high waves to the beaches as we go through the weekend, keeping our eyes peeled on that. for today, here's a check of what's going going to happen. here's what we look like heading into the 2:00 hour. have the rain gear. let's get a check of abc 2 news time saver traffic, good morning, mike. >>reporter: good morning. everything is pretty quiet. we do have some construction still ongoing at 695 at fredrick road. just be aware of that. our speeds have been reduced and that's because they've tied things up to just a

[ applause ] sorry, i was watching c-span all day. you know, this democratic national convention wraps up in charlotte tonight. there were a lot of speeches, touting president obama's accomplishments since he took office and, yes, osama bin laden is dead now and the auto industry seems to have pulled through pretty well. but on the other hand, back in 2008, there was no snooki, there was no honey boo boo. and now there are both. snooki even had a child. and someone has to be held accountable. that's my take on this. former president clinton made an impression last night with his speech. president clinton is a great public speaker. a lot of his speech was improvised, but he does the trick to stay relaxed. he imagines that everyone in the audience is naked, except hillary. [ laughter ] calms him down. mrs. clinton watched her husband's speech via computer. from southeast asia, she's over there working. this photograph has been widely circulated online today. they seem so happy together when they're not together, don't they? [ laughter ] it did give me a sense of nostalgia to see clinton on stage speaking like that. ill mean, remember, when he was president, the biggest problem we had, i think, was ross and rachel were going to get back together and they did, thanks to him. he was supposed to speak for 28 minutes. he ended up speaking for 48 minutes. the crowd ate it up. bill clinton last night was to the democrats what channing tatum is to drunk girls. he got them very worked up, ready for a baby, and -- [ laughter ] you could tell by the way he ended the speech that he knew it, too. >> and you must re-elect president barack obama! god bless you and god bless america. ♪ don't stop thinking about tomorrow ♪ ♪ don't stop ♪ it'll be here better than before ♪ ♪ yesterday's gone ♪ yesterday's gone ♪ don't stop >> jimmy: they call that the clinton clutch. [ laughter ] but it's good to see that they're getting along. [ applause ] this -- this is a fun way to watch clinton's speech. you know that game you play when you get a fortune cookie and you add the words "in bed" to the end just for fun. worked pretty well for clinton's speech last night. >> one of the reasons we ought to re-elect president obama he's still committed to constructive cooperation -- >> jimmy: in bed. >> and if you will renew the president's contract, you will feel it. you will feel it -- >> jimmy: in bed. [ laughter ] you see? it really works for probably any speech, but -- not all of the speeches at the dnc were as good as president clinton's. i watched all day leading up to the primetime. some of them are very hard to sit through. most of them, senators, mayors, governors, more than a hundred speeches last night and over the last three days. but this one, i think, may have been the best of all of them. [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. i was born in a small town, in a small car, with a small bell around my neck that would ring like freedom rings. [ applause ] my grandfather was a coal miner, and an immigrant. [ cheers and applause ] we don't want charles in charge. we want barack obama in charge. [ cheers and applause ] >> four more years! four more years! >> who wants to take their shirts off, huh? and get a little weird? >> jimmy: he's got my vote. i don't know what he's running for. there were a lot of celebrities at the convention. jessica alba, eva longoria, ashley judd was there. kerry washington gave a speech. then scarlett johansson spoke. president clinton must have been going nuts. i think that's why they had him there last night. but kim kardashian is reportedly in charlotte to attend the dnc afterparty. not because she was invited. federal law requires that a kardashian be present at any officially sanctioned afterparty in the united states, so she was there. there were a number of high profile musicians today, too, james taylor, too figfoo fightey j. blige. there's a lot of passion at these things. with that said, it's time for the dnc dancers of the night. ♪ >> jimmy: really getting -- [ cheers and applause ] hey, we've got some fun guests waiting patiently backstage for you tonight. adam scott is here tonight. we have music from everclear, and we'll be graced by the presence of trey parker and matt stone, creators of "south park" and "the book of mormon." if you aren't -- if you haven't gone to new york to see "the book of mormon," this is a musical they wrote. it's fantastic. if you haven't seen it, here's a clip. ♪ for purple mountains majesty above the fruited plains ♪ >> jimmy: i think we may have loaded the wrong clip, but you get the idea. mitt romney, hey, this is interesting. mitt romney may have been hacked. as you probably know, he's refused to release any of his tax returns from before 2010. but now, anonymous group of hackers is claiming that last month they broke into the accounting firm where romney's financial records are stored. they hacked into the computers and stole his tax information. which sounds like the plot of the most boring heist movie ever, but -- it's true. the hackers are now threatening to release the returns unless romney pays them $1 million. which i would ask for more. you can probably find $1 million in the plates of mitt romney's dockers. a lot of people are interested in seeing the tax returns. i'm not. i would rather see his web browser history. i think he'd learn a lot more. if he release his taxes, we'll find out he's rich. we all know he's rich. we see what kinds of things he's searching for at, like, 2:00 a.m. on a wednesday. that will tell us who this man really is. next week, simon cowell and britney spears will be here. there's a bitter few brewing between "the x factor" and "the voice" on nbc. simon blasted nbc for scheduling an extra episode of "the voice" on wednesday next week because it overlaps with the premiere of "x factor" on fox. he said he thought he had a gentlemen's agreement that the shows won't overlap. now they will. he said it's a cynical, cold-hearted unprofessional way of doing business. [ laughter ] he knows he's simon cowell, right? [ laughter ] i got to ask him about it. i don't like when singing competition shows fight. it's a shame. you would think they're working towards the same goal, which is finding mediocre singers who will probably never be heard from again. i'm glad that simon got that off his chest. now, if he would just get the baby gap t-shirts off his chest, we'd be onto something. this is something you might find interesting. in germany, someone has created a bike with no pedals. instead of using pedals, you just push the bike along with your feet. basically they've invented a broken bicycle. [ laughter ] they've uninvented the bike. technology was originally developed by fred flintstone. the best thing about these bikes, you don't have to lock them up because no one would ever want to steal it. here is another innovation. this one is all amican. starting later this month, a jewelry store is running a special. anyone who abuse more than $2,500 worth of diamonds gets a free hunting rifle. buy her a diamond, get a free hunting rifle. that's -- if the diamond doesn't convince her to say yes, maybe the rifle will. the company's website says diamond or rifle, this hunting season, you don't have to choose. [ laughter ] by the way, if you really do have to choose between a ring and a rifle, you might be better off spending that money on some kind of couple's therapy. god gifted us with a new episode of "here comes honey boo boo" last night on tlc. shame on you. [ laughter ] what they've done, they took the most repugnant family in america, they found them on "toddlers and tiaras" and awarded them with a show of their own. the star of the show is a 7-year-old known as honey boo boo child. last night, her show tied president clinton's speech in traitings. that's right. just as many people watched honey boo boo. well, you're about to see why. honey boo boo and her family went to a barbecue restaurant and let us in on how they manage to stay so fit. >> my family just loves to eat. >> she wants the three combo. >> okay. >> and the ribs with the barbecue chicken. >> and potato salad and baked beans. >> i don't think you're going to eat all this. >> but i want it. >> but she want it. her eyes are bigger than her mouth, i think. >> we're fat. >> jimmy: remember when tlc used to be the learning channel? it's not that anymore. although we did learn that they're fat. yeah. one more thing. it's thursday night, it's time for our weekly tribute to the fcc, where we bleep and blur things whether they need it or not. it is "this week in unnecessary censorship." >> everyone, needless to say, here, is looking forward to having the president [ bleep ] a blooep wloo[ bleep ], so to spe. >> i found out that i was making significantly less money than the men who are doing the same work as me. i went home, talked to my husband, and we decided to [ bleep ]. >> this is something that i've dreamed about ever since i was a little boy, [ bleep ] in front of the mirror with my dad. >> is this a night you've been looking forward to for awhile. >> [ bleep ] cowboys butts, absolutely. >> if mitt was santa claus, he would [ bleep ] the reindeer and [ bleep ] the elves. >> what happened to me last night? >> you [ bleep ] everyone. >> no! >> an elementary school principal shaved his [ bleep ]. to keep a promise. >> after last night, i want a man who had the good sense to [ bleep ] michelle obama. >> yes, that's it.

>> yes. >> jimmy: really? >> i have to pay for the seat. >> jimmy: is that true or -- >> it's totally true. and we literally spent tens of thousands of dollars on getting -- because it added up. just like, $200 here, there. >> friends want to go, you have to -- >> two years, tens of thousands -- >> losing money on this thing. >> jimmy: this is terrible. they say -- matt and i are the single biggest ticket buyers, for sure. >> that's why it's sold out. >> jimmy: that's a terrible plan. you have need to renegotiate, i think. you really do. and you started the tour in denver. that was the first stop on the tour. >> yeah. >> jimmy: your hometown. was that exciting or -- i imagine that was a pain, though, with all the people there. >> yeah, we got -- every night, i mean, really hard to figure out who we were going to get tickets for and who we weren't. >> jimmy: who would ask you? >> everyone. my fifth grade music teacher asked me, through people through people, you know? and it was like, even my father, he's like, i'm not getting tickets for people anymore. everyone got sick of being a secretary. >> i had a doctor in l.a. that i went to one time in the '90s, for some reason. literally, in the '90s. he called asking. >> jimmy: did you? >> no, i was like, no. >> my girlfriend -- >> jimmy: hold on. rewind a little. your girlfriend, who? >> boogie. her hairstylist wanted tickets. what did you think? oh, we didn't make it but we paid for those! >> jimmy: oh, boogie -- >> they thought they got free tickets, so, whatever. >> jimmy: did you have celebrities come to the preneer in denver? >> we tried to get the denver broncos to come. but we thought -- we're hot shots now, we're back in denver, now we can meet the broncos. and they didn't get back to us. >> jimmy: none of them? >> we thought we were big cheese. no. >> jimmy: did you invite john elway? he didn't show up? >> still not cool enough. >> jimmy: is that right? none of the broncos had time -- >> no broncos, no nuggets. i didn't see any rockies, no avalanche. nothing. >> we were the two celebrities here. >> jimmy: this will be different here in l.a., i would think, right? >> i don't know. we invited some clippers and -- >> jimmy: clippers are bad to invite. if you get stuck sitting behind a clipper at a show, you can't see anything. >> that's true. >> jimmy: don't -- uninvite the clippers. did you invite -- >> i'm sure we have to pay for their tickets anyway. >> jimmy: don't invite too many people. when you go back to your hometown, do you go to your old spots, or is it one of those -- >> i actually went to -- we had the documentary, we did behind the scenes -- >> jimmy: oh, that was great. yeah. >> and they now are doing something else so they wanted to see where i grew up. so, we took them up into the mountains in colorado and i thought, you know, oh, i won't recognize it. it hadn't changed at all. like, there wasn't even a house that had been remodeled. it was like, every house was -- i'm like, there's kyle's house, kenny's house. everything was the same. and then we drove up to where i grew up and it was just like, i saw cars in the driveway, i was like, okay, wait, i didn't want to walk in with a camera crew. i walk up. there's guys working in the groj garage. i was thinking, how do i say that? excuse me. the guy goes, you're trey parker. i'm like, yeah. he goes, i knew this day was going to come. i was like, wow, really? hold on, i got something for you. he goes into the house, he comes back out with my high school class ring. he goes, is this yours? i was like, yeah, that's -- this was in the vent. and the documentary guys caught it on tape. crazy. >> jimmy: that's pretty great. you got your class ring back. that's nice. >> and he got tickets to book of mormon that i had to pay for. >> jimmy: seems like a pretty good trade-off. did you get to go in the house and look around? >> yeah, everything was exactly the same, and i went into my room, which is, like, we all go back childhood rooms and it was a nine by nine cell. and just -- how did i live here. >> jimmy: did you get emotional in the house? >> no, no. >> jimmy: i didn't think so, i figured i would throw it out there. now, you guys -- i don't know, do you guys care what other people think in general? it seems like maybe you >> a little bit. >> jimmy: the reviews for "book of mormon," when they first came out, did you -- is that something you were worried about, you thought about? >> yeah, reviews -- i think more than, like, reviews in theater mean a lot more, especially -- >> jimmy: why do you think they mean more? >> i think because -- compared to tv, right now somebody is watching this at home and it's free, they just shut it off and walk away. probably doing that right now. and with a movie, it's ten bucks, for some people, it's not that much money. if it stinks -- theater is so much money. 100 buck us, a big night out for people to go and i think reviews matter. people need to, okay -- it's such an investment of time and i check reviews for theater, because it's not uncomfortable to watch a junky movie, but when you have to sit there, you're looking at them -- >> looking at you like they know it's bad, too. >> i understand why reviews are more important. >> jimmy: so, "the new york times," which is -- that's the most important of all the reviews, right? it comes out and -- how long after the show premieres does it come out? >> the night of the premiere. >> comes out opening night. a funny thing, we were, like, at the afterparty of the opening night and everyone who was in the theater world is like, literally, 10:38, at 10:38 the review comes out. some time, they all knew and they magically all knew when it was going to come out. >> jimmy: this is all the doubters and deniers out there, the ones that say that heaven on broadway does not exist, that it's only some mist our ancestors dreamed up, i am here to report that a old fashioned please sure giving musical has arrived. it asheaved something like a miracle. "the new york times." then, what happens when you guys read this? >> a few drinks. >> jimmy: entertaining act of musical comedy. and maybe most importantly, the ultimate accolade came from twitter. "saw the book of mormon last night. have you guys seen it? it's hysterical. so pleasantly surprised." kim kardashian. >> wow. and that's when you say -- >> that's when you know you did it. >> it's all worth it. >> "new york times," kim kardashian. >> jimmy: if kim asks you for tickets, will you provide them for her? >> hell no. >> jimmy: when we come back, because it's about mormon, i want to ask you about mitt romney, who actually spoke about your miusical publicly. matt and trey are here. the apple r $20 is one appetizer, two entrees for just 20 bucks. only the best dishes make the menu. it's a southwest showdown. the chefs are coming out choppin'! you can taste the tension in the room! this is really distracting.
